Josh Groban and his fellow Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 castmates took to social media to support the Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition. The rules are simple: donate to the cause, post a video singing a tune from Lin-Manuel Miranda's Tony- and Pulitzer-winning musical, and challenge others to do so as well.
Upon request from Miranda himself, Groban, who took his final bow in The Great Comet July 2, sang Eliza's ballad “Burn.” He in turn challenged his co-stars Grace McLean and Brittain Ashford, who obliged with renditions of “You'll Be Back” and “It's Quiet Uptown,” respectively.
Ingrid Michaelson, who makes her Broadway debut as Sonya at the Imperial Theatre beginning July 3, joined in with a split-screen mashup of The Great Comet's “Sonya Alone” and Hamilton “That Would Be Enough.”
Two Hamilton alums with Great Comet ties took part as well. Okieriete “Oak” Onaodowan, who steps into the role of Pierre beginning July 11 and originated the roles of Hercules Mulligan James Madison in Hamilton, offered Aaron Burr's “Wait For It.” Meanwhile, the Tony-nominated Phillipa Soo, who originated the roles of Eliza in Hamilton on Broadway and Natasha in The Great Comet's Off-Broadway premiere, showed off her rap skills with “My Shot.”
The coalition provides services to immigrants, refugees, and asylees. Those who donate ten dollars or more will be entered to win two VIP tickets to the opening night performance of Hamilton in Los Angeles, including a meet-and-greet with Lin-Manuel Miranda. Click here for more information.
